Target R

My exams are going on now in college and I'm bound to books for some time, but not for long. Next month I'll be out in the wild again!
But this time, instead of just getting knowledge and doing small things (see other posts), i'm thinking big. This year I set a resolution to switch my room to complete Renewable energy powered in the coming years till i complete my graduation. Its just 2 years left now and I've done nothing!
A genuine excuse for that is because this was my first year in college and i wasn't settled properly at a place.
Talking of place, this 2 room rented apartment where I'm living now has ample renewable resources for my needs(I guess). Being on the top floor, it receives full day solar blast, and good wind too, maybe due to nearby mountain range 'Shivalik Hills'.
So the plan is to make a device that captures Sunlight and Wind simultaneously. Any ideas?

I am impressed with your blog maan. It has some good material. I am a solar dreamer but I do nothing. I am happy you have the time to do something.

Kinno hai yaar....ur blog is really very very popular i see... and its pretty good too!! Nice job.

I'm not able to get u on mail....

Anyways, life kaisa hai yaar?? I'm actually doing a project on solar cells over here.. characterization actully. Our prof wants us to make a 2D tracker.. To tera idea man me aa gaya.... Anyways... its killing. I need ur expert opinion!!

Phone number kya hai yaar?? message kar de mujhe... come on skype sometimes. Raghav kaisa hai?? Any contact?? I'm staing for the summer in Singapore now...

spinning energy from hurricanes...
sounds good to me... Now if only someone could figure out how to use all that insufferable heat they have in the south and west every summer. Imagine converting so much solar energy to electricity or hot water that the ambient temperature went down one degree...after all, dissimlar metals release electricity when in contact under heat...

Can I ask what it is you are studying, and if you have any plans for the future?

Hi, Nice ideas, you can create electricity using solar panels facing the sun as much as possible and you can use mini fan type generators to capture the wind and wire them all up to create a solar power system for your apartment.

You should check out some of the videos and ideas at
